Unusual Candidiate

Postby pepemaui » Mon Mar 26, 2012 8:54 pm

Hi everyone! I am a 39 year old MD, MBA. My undergrad grades from Emory were 3.57, MBA 3.83, LSAT 175. I am a board certified emergency medicine physician who is applying to law school. I understand the financial ramifications, but I am really just looking for opinions on Top tier schools like Harvard/Yale/etc.. I know my GPA is a bit low, but I have the MD/MBA as well. Does it make a difference or am I simply chucked out because of my gpa? Thanks for your thoughts.

I would think you are precisely the candidate who can overcome that GPA, especially with that LSAT. I think you are good to go with one or both of H/Y.

You don't need to make more than one thread for the exact same topic.
